Graphic Override (GO) and Layer folders

It would be nice to be able to make a GO rule based on having all elements on layers in a certain layer folder (not layer combo or single layers) shown with - for instance - Pen no 1, and all elements on layers in a different layer folder is shown with Pen no 2 (or any other GO option). I know, just add the layers one by one in the Criteria box to achieve the wanted visual effect. Here in over-regulated Norway, though, the "national" layer system require an abundance of coded layers (example: 2314 Exterior Wall with a boyfriend named Sue - and: 2315 Exterior Wall still single - and so on). 

Jokes aside, is it possible to give layer folders - and maybe other attribute folders - this much power?
